Meeting your in-laws

I created this activity for students to work on question forms and dialogues when meeting someone for the first time. I used this task with elementary adult students for them to practice and apply question forms in the (terrifying for many) context of meeting your son's or daughter's boyfriend or girlfriend.

Warm up (whole class):

Imagine your son / daughter invited his boyfriend / girlfriend to your house for the first time. What questions would you ask him or her? Share.

Activity 1:

Organize the words to make questions – Tick the ones you think are more likely to be asked.
  • you do alone live ?
  • An fly in today you airplane did?
  • how earn money do much you ?
  • you do where live?
  • your what plans are future for the ?
  • did for tonight eat pot roast dinner you?
  • it was under-cooked?
  • you daughter love my do?
  • you videos have watched pornographic ever?
  • girl did meet you where my?
Activity 2: 

Watch the videos and check if your predictions were correct.


Role play the scene using the following expressions:

Boyfriend / girlfriend
  • Tell me more about your life…
  • What do you like to do?
  • That’s interesting/ good/ nice…
  • That sounds great/ fantastic…
  • Me too…
  • What about your future plans?

  • What do you want to know?
  • I like/ love…
  • I hate/ dislike/ can’t stand…
  • I work at…
  • I live in…
  • I’m good at…
  • I’m interested in…
  • I want to…
  • I would like to…

As a follow up: Students could enter to and create a movie that portrays this situation. Here you have an example:

Here's a presentation I used.

I hope you find it useful.
